We Want What’s Best For Your Family
In Louisiana, the law focuses on the arrangement that will be in the child’s best interests. If the parents cannot agree on an arrangement, the court will step in and decide. However, it is typical for parents to negotiate a parenting plan that can turn into a binding legal agreement. We can help you through this option and work together to find the best solution for your children.
There are different custody arrangements in Louisiana, including sole and joint custody. Louisiana courts often prefer joint custody arrangements because both parents share responsibility for the child.
However, joint custody does not determine how much time the child spends with each parent. The scheduling of parenting time can be determined through an agreement between parents or the court granting visitation rights. Our family law lawyers have experience with various types of custody arrangements and are prepared to help you and your family through any result.
